If you have a cat, there's a good chance you love and treat it as part of your family. As a result, of course you want to make sure your cat receives the veterinary care he or she needs to live a long, healthy, and happy life. Here at Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic, we encourage all cat owners to take steps towards preventative care.
What exactly is preventative care? It could refer to any number of actions, ranging from making sure your cat is up-to-date on vaccinations to making sure he or she is eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Essentially, preventative care refers to the steps you and your vet take to protect your cat from health problems down the road. With the proper preventative care, you can potentially help your feline friend lead a longer and healthier life.
At Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic, we provide your cat with the preventative care he or she needs in the form of vaccinations. Even if your cat was fully vaccinated when you adopted him/her and remains an indoor cat, there are still some necessary vaccinations to keep in mind. For example, most cats (even indoor ones) should be vaccinated against rabies about once every three years (though this can vary based on your cat's age). Other potential vaccinations include:
In most cases, the above vaccines are recommended once per year, but again, this could vary based on your cat's age (especially if he or she is over the age of 10). Either way, a trusted and experienced veterinarian will be able to tell you which vaccinations are recommended for your cat and how often they should be administered.
In addition to preventative care and vaccinations, we offer a variety of other services here at Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic. From surgeries and dentistry to boarding and more, we're here to help you give your cat the best life possible. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
